Skip to comments.The Images Of SWAT Teams In Boston Suburbs Are Terrifying

In the last 10 years, American forces have cleared cities house by house plenty of times. But they don't usually do that right here in the United States.
This video shows a specific example of what it looks like when thousands of police and FBI agents descended on suburban America decked out in military gear. They had orders to clear a "20-block area" of the neighborhood, and systematically searched from door-to-door.
The video shows police shouting at an innocent resident and barking at him repeatedly to keep his hands up.

AND THE 500,000 eyes absolutely FAILED.
PING! Hurry before it’s GONE!
Nothing new under the sun.
One set of eyes who was alert....gave us the creep.
Thing is these cops knew exactly who they were looking for.
the billions of dollars are spent to militarize the police,
but that same money wasn’t spent to check up on a thug that Russia told us to keep an eye on???
Yes they did. I wonder how many old scores were settled under the guise of ‘We are looking for the terrorist’?
When the ‘lockdown’ was ended, one citizen went outside, noticed an open shed door and his opened boat tarp, and called police. So much for the lockdown.
In other news, nothing quite spells FREEDOM as clearly as thousands of military soldiers walking down city streets, with assault rifles (i.e. the real ones) at the ready, knocking on doors of people not suspected of any crime. Ahh, freedom.
“Boston Strong” = “Arbeit Macht Frei!”
Honestly..... I’m not sure how well declaring martial law and going through people’s houses without a warrant works in Oklahoma or Texas. Probably get a bunch of people shot before it was over with.
So much for “Oathkeepers” ....
I don’t think we have our priorities right. We need to spend the money on background checks of possible bad guys and immigration control..not on more armored vehicles and swat teams.
Odd how 0bama cut bomb detection funding by 45% but suddenly for this, there’s all kinds of money available!
Does anyone else wonder what would have happened if thepolice were met at the door by a homeowner holding a shotgun? Or a bad dog? Or just told the police to get the phuck out of their home?
Nothing gives the police the right to act this way in America.Women coming out of their own home with their hands up like criminals.
No one comes in my house without a warrant. I would be pleasant but firm to start with. By the time it was over my lawyer and I (or my suRvivng family members) would be quite rich
Those that registered had their guns confiscated - those that didn't, left town to hang in the outskirts.
Make a long story short - the ones who kept their guns ended up defeating and tossing out the oppressors.
Then decided to enshrine the right to bear arms in a way that could never be overturned.
DO WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN??
These intruders were working ‘round the clock to find the bombers, and probably very tired. Not too hard to imagine one of them taking a quick nap on someones couch once someone’s home was cleared.
The third amendment is rarely talked about, but the above scenario would/could bring it into play so easily when the attitudes are so cavalier going into homes of innocent citizens.
1) Video cameras are everywhere in Boston but prevented nothing.
2) The willingness of the Boston population to be penned up and have their travel restricted by "sheltering in place".
3) The well known "tough" gun control laws prevented citizens the opportunity of defending themselves if the situation had arisen. These same "tough" laws never prevented the bad guys from obtaining and using guns.
Also, in recent shootings, the MSM has screamed about the "assault weapons" used but in the case of obvious terrorism, they are silent on the type of weapons used except this (typically) idiotic Yahoo/Reuters story on that:
